San Sebastian is home to one of the most consistent beach breaks in Spain...La Zurriola. Located on the east side of this beautiful city, La Zurriola runs for 800 metres. San Sebastian surf lessons usually take place here. It's a perfect beginners spot and a great place to relax and chill out after a surf. The beach has great facilities including showers, volley ball, restaurants and cafés. It is surrounded by the stunning Monte Ijeldo and Monte Urgull mountains. The beach can pick up a lot of swell and is great for the more advanced also.

The town's other beach La Concha lies on the West side of the city. It's a sun bathing beach but next to it is Onderatta beach, there is a nice mellow beachbreak here.

East and west of the city you will find beach after beach to explore and surf - the water stays warm until the end of September thanks to the weather that the Bay of Biscay receives. San Sebastian is only a 30 minute drive from Biarritz, a direct bus will take you there in just over an hour - another great destination to surf and explore.

Spain's main surf town, Zarautz, is only 20kms West of San Sebastian, an easy train ride away...another great place with a 2.5km surf beach.

The Basque area offers a huge array of surf breaks waiting to be explored.
